Windows Server 2008 & IIS or ZenCart

Hi Experts,
I've been looking at ZenCart and not liking how hard it looks to access my database and put products onto a website that I'd like to sell many products and link to Paypal.  But now I'm wondering if instead, I should put all the effort into getting Windows Server 2008 and learning how to use IIS, etc.  It looks great, but I don't have an extra machine to install Windows Server 2008 on.  Do I absolutely need it to run IIS?  If I'm only using it for developping?  (what's wrong with using Windows 7 to run a server)?  Any suggestions are very appreciated on making a website for a c# programmer are also welcomed to point me in a possible better direction!
Thank you!
Mike

No.  You can run IIS on a Windows 7 workstation edition, for development.

>> what's wrong with using Windows 7 to run a server
Workstation versions of Windows limit the number of inbound network connections (last I heard, anyway).
